Stuff and Pictures. :-)

Sugar and spice
and everything nice
that's what little girls are made of

Sunshine and rainbows
and ribbons for hair bows
that's what little girls are made of

Tea parties, laces
and baby doll faces
that's what little girls are made of

Life has been... normal lately. :-) Dwight's been studying, Chloe's been growing, Sprout and more visibly myself have been growing, etc. Chloe is fun, I love being her mum. She had a day where for some reason she decided to see if she could still crawl, and after getting used to her only walking, that was pretty comical. And then she broke out into a run one day, and mercy. When she starts doing that more, I'm in BIG trouble. There is no way I could keep up with her! She is fast!

She is cutting her 1-year molars, which basically means that most nights no one under this roof (well, hopefully we don't bother the neighbors too much) gets much sleep, but at least it is temporary! It is so sad when she just cries and cries... the poor girlies pain threshold is like a -10. But she is still our chunky monkey - at her 12 month apt. she was about 24 lbs. and 32 in.

And she likes to chatter and sing here at home... lots. It is fun to start recognizing words! So far she seems to know and can say - yes (and nods her head), all done, thank you, again, drink, banana, mum/ mama, dad/ dada, oh yeah, and peek-a-boo (just drops the k). {I should write things like this down because I don't remember what else she has said!} She has pretty reddish hair and a temper to match. ;-) Can't imagine where that comes from! She also seems to think that her diaper days are over. She keeps trying to get up when I'm changing her and telling me that she is all done. "All done with what?", I said the first time she did this. "Your diaper? Oh no you aren't!" "Yes," she said (grinning and nodding her head emphatically). "All done." Not quite, my lil' missy! Then later (she was in a dreaded velcro cover) she brought the whole thing to me after she had taken it off, with another "all done." I'm trying to think whether training should commence or if it is just a fascination with the phrase "all done." :-P 

Her cowgirl jammies. On her left it says I ♥ my pony. :-) 

30 weeks. Won't be long! We've already discussed NOT going two weeks past the due date again with our midwife. ;-) 
A very blurry 4-D ultrasound picture of our Sproutsie (taken at 30 weeks). Can you see the lil' nose and mouth? Baby's eyes are open in the picture, and is covering the other side of his/her face with his/her arm. (I can't wait to find out what we are having!!!!) Sproutsie has lots of hair just like Chloe did. They must get that from Dwight. I was still practically bald on my 2nd birthday.
